Review of Kendal: An old town found on the edge of the Lake District in Cumbria, Kendal stands on the River Kent and it's a vital spot for tourism, appealing to many travellers both summer and winter. An early Roman fortress and 12th C Norman fort present proof of Kendal's long past story as it stretches back to unrecorded times, the reference of it in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086 indicates its significance during those long gone days.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal simply because the majority of the buildings are constructed of locally sourced grey limestone, the settlement was traditionally part of Westmorland but is these days the 3rd most significant built-up area in the county of Cumbria. Under no circumstances a big town with approximately 28,000 inhabitants, Kendal does on top of that lure lots of extra folks in the form of travellers who head to this well known area. Identified as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal throughout the eras.

Apart from the tourism industry, Kendal is most well known for the manufacture of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been stumbled upon unintentionally and later supplied as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Antarctic Trip. Kendal has in addition been a noteworthy market town, & other industries by which its citizens have made a living included the manufacturing of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, shoes and wool.

The Historical Past of Kendal: From the first up to fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held command of the Kendal area, replacing the Brigantes tribe, they built a fortification in around 90 AD, at some point trading with the displaced Brigantes so as to keep the fortification in supplies.

Once the Romans left, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on up to the Norman invasion at which time a castle of stone was raised upon Castle Hill in the 12th century, there are still what remains of which we now know as Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is possibly most famed as the home of the Parr family, in fact many people think that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry the 8th's 6th wife was born in the castle, though this is extremely unlikely since the castle was actually in a poor state of repair at the time she was born.

The town's right to hold a Saturday market dates back as long ago as 1189 when it was accorded its Market Charter (the fee from which raised funds for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter remains to this day and the market has been very crucial for the area over the generations.



The town of Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, in England, UK, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle, it is gotten to by railway by using the FirstTranspennine Express & by road by using of the A65, A6 or A684 routes.
